Improve Document Type Selection for Drag-and-Drop File Upload

The drag and drop document upload feature is great as well as the automatic document type recognition. However, the current manual document type selection feature can be slow and cumbersome. For example, when loading a large under of IDS support documents such as foreign patents and non-patent literature it can take a long time to individually select their document type.


To solve this problem, there should be some way to select multiple documents at the same time after they are uploaded, and use one drop down to select the document type for all of those documents at the same time. For example, if I have thirty non-patent literature documents, there should be some mechanism to select all thirty and the same time, and use one drop-down to select "non-patent literature."
